A blend of Hollywood and Bollywood styles, Mira Nair’s 2001 comedy-drama is an exuberant celebration of modern-day India, family, love, and life. Introduced by SIFF Development and Membership Manager, amateur wedding expert, and current fiancé Carson Rennekamp.

A stressed father, a bride-to-be with a secret, a smitten event planner, and relatives from around the world create much ado about the preparations for an arranged marriage in India.
